AC Milan defender Romagnoli has claimed that Chelsea’s new loan signing is currently the world’s best striker.

“I still think he is the best striker in the world,” said the defender, as quoted by Calciomercato . “I am sorry he decided to leave but we respect his decision. He is a friend of mine and if he is happy I am ok with it. Now we have other players that won’t make us regret his departure.”

Higauin was on loan at AC Milan from Juventus in the first half of the season but the average form of the Milan team saw Higuain perform poorly and now he has been granted his wish of playing under his favourite boss Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea. Milan in exchange had to buy Piatek, the young dynamic Serie A striker.

“We enjoy having him [Piatek] here and we hope he can keep scoring at least one goal per game,” he added. “We hope to win many more games so we can reach the Champions League. Piatek’s impressed me with his desire and hunger. You can see he wants to show what he’s all about and that’s important. He’s young and on the right path.”
